    ms

    CI

    Use this package to easily convert various time formats to milliseconds.

    Examples

    ms('2 days')  // 172800000
    ms('1d')      // 86400000
    ms('10h')     // 36000000
    ms('2.5 hrs') // 9000000
    ms('2h')      // 7200000
    ms('1m')      // 60000
    ms('5s')      // 5000
    ms('1y')      // 31557600000
    ms('100')     // 100
    ms('-3 days') // -259200000
    ms('-1h')     // -3600000
    ms('-200')    // -200

    Convert from Milliseconds

    ms(60000)             // "1m"
    ms(2 * 60000)         // "2m"
    ms(-3 * 60000)        // "-3m"
    ms(ms('10 hours'))    // "10h"

    Time Format Written-Out

    ms(60000, { long: true })             // "1 minute"
    ms(2 * 60000, { long: true })         // "2 minutes"
    ms(-3 * 60000, { long: true })        // "-3 minutes"
    ms(ms('10 hours'), { long: true })    // "10 hours"

    Features

    • Works both in Node.js and in the browser
    • If a number is supplied to ms, a string with a unit is returned
    • If a string that contains the number is supplied, it returns it as a number (e.g.: it returns 100 for '100')
    • If you pass a string with a number and a valid unit, the number of equivalent milliseconds is returned

    Caught a Bug?

    1. Fork this repository to your own GitHub account and then clone it to your local device
    2. Link the package to the global module directory: npm link
    3. Within the module you want to test your local development instance of ms, just link it to the dependencies: npm link ms. Instead of the default one from npm, Node.js will now use your clone of ms!

    As always, you can run the tests using: npm test
